2 out of 3 of ours are grades.

First is my husband's horse Apache. Draft cross of some sort. He was a Nurse Mare Orphan foal and all we know is that the farm he came from had "grey gaited stallions" and a lot of draft and draft cross mares. So who knows beyond that. His base color was a chestnut tobiano so I have guessed at Belgian X grey spotted saddle? Maybe? He stands at a big 15.2 hands - everyone is always thinking he is over 16 hands.

The other one is my 2 year old - Rascal. I answered an ad for a haflinger, and he is one of them that was there. I'm sure he is not purebred haflinger - if he even has any at all in him. He is about 14 hands right now but growing.

Hi Everyone! These are our twins, they are Hanoverian/Quarter horse crosses, just turned three this month. :) The first is Kix, the day after we got him in June. He is the pesky twin!

The second is Cisco, he is a bit stand off-ish but is coming around. Anything for treats, he should have been called Porky!

They are definitely twins, you scratch my back, I will scratch yours!

Heres ours!


QH/Paint/Shetland??? LOL. He's only 13.2hh, but built like a mac truck

Our Grade mare Caddilac or "Caddy" she is supposed to be a Percheron QH cross but was a PMU foal, so your guess is as good as mine. She is a tad bossy, and absolutely food obsessed-but very sensible and anyone can hop on her and be safe

My supposedly used-to-have-papers Paint:

Same story on the QH gelding:

And just about the greatest horse you could ever have, a true grade, who-knows-what-he-was, pony, now sadly deceased, but the once-possesser of great conformation, atheleticism, soundness, and extraordinary temperament....:

This is my grade mare Star. She is a bit "conformationally challenged" but she is an awesome trail horse and a complete sweetheart. I always depend on her to put beginner riders on for a nice relaxing ride. She's 22 this year and her eye sight is starting to go downhill. As far as what breed she is I was told her sire was an appy and her dam was "an old grey mare".
